Hi GRRNers:

This is off topic but of importance if we are to prevent the US from a
pre-emptive strike on Iraq.

Subject: Bush Protest at UN on Thurs at 9 AM
 
PROTEST BUSH SPEAKING AT UNITED NATIONS
September 12, Thursday, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, New York City  
 
Protest at UN where President Bush is speaking that morning before the
General Assembly to advocate his plans to wage war against Iraq. 
Permitted protest area at Dag Hammarskjold Park in Manhattan at 47th
Street and First Avenue.  Due to anticipated large crowds and the
addition of many additional groups, 47th Street will be blocked off from
traffic and will be our designated protest area.  Enter from Second
Avenue.  Start gathering at 9:00 am.  Speakers from 9:30 am to 12:00
noon.  
 
Protest the policies of the unelected President, including his disregard
for the environment, preference for corporate interests, his poor record
on women's issues and civil rights, and his advocating military
aggression against Iraq.  We must show Bush and the leaders of the World
that the American people are not in favor of a reckless, preemptive
military campaign in Iraq which will likely lead to a powder keg of the
entire Middle East region.
